3 Verulam Buildings (3VB) is a leading commercial set of more than eighty Barristers, of whom nearly thirty are Queen’s Counsel. Ambitious, driven, and competing with the ‘magic circle’, 3VB is a chambers with enormous potential. Particularly regarded as one of the principal sources of advocacy and advice in banking and finance law, it provides legal services across a broad range of commercial law, in the UK and internationally. 3VB’s vision is to be consistently recognised as a leader in its fields, appearing in the most important national and international cases, while being a collegiate and supportive working environment for Members of Chambers, Associate Members, and staff.
3VB now seeks a Marketing Director, who will play a key role on the Business Development Committee (BD Committee) and beyond to develop and perfect the set’s external relations strategies. They will originate, advance, and deliver new initiatives in consultation with the BD Committee Chair, Heads of Chambers, and Chambers Director. The Marketing Director will be responsible for the implementation and review of the Chambers’ annual BD plan and those of its practice area groups. Moreover, they will enable Members of Chambers to mature their individual external strategies and create an environment in which they can seamlessly draw on best-in-class marketing materials and advice.
The successful applicant will have occupied a senior marketing or business development role in a respected organisation. Experience and a successful track record of developing the profile of a professional services business with private sector clients would be an advantage, but equivalent experience will also be considered. Candidates not from a legal background will need to bring themselves up to date on issues facing the Bar and show an affinity with the important work of the profession.
A competitive package will be negotiated with the successful candidate; this is a chance to make a considerable difference to a high-calibre organisation’s future success.
